Casein - a night time muscle building protein source.
Despite being one of the oldest forms of protein supplement, there is still some confusion over casein, its benefits and its difference to whey. And, whilst both are derived from milk they do differ hugely.
Both casein and whey are high-quality proteins as they contain all essential amino acids, which you must get from food since your body cannot make them.
One of the significant differences between casein and whey protein is how quickly your body absorbs them.
Your body breaks down protein into many small molecules called amino acids, which circulate in your bloodstream until they’re absorbed.
Levels of these amino acids stay elevated in your blood for four to five hours after you consume casein but only 90 minutes after you consume whey which is why whey should always be your go to after training sessions to re-feed your muscle instantly but casein can be consumed before bedtime, to make best use of its slow release.
